Enter your PIN number, or take the unit back to the "Security Location" and it will unlock by itself. You can then enter a new PIN unlock code.

Ask the person from whom you purchased this unit (it does NOT come locked from the factory) what the PIN is. If he/she will not provide the code, ask for a refund. You will NOT be able to use this unit without the correct PIN.

If your Garmin NUVI 205 can be recognized by your computer when plugged in, I recommend you backup your favorites.

Then I suggest a hard reset.

Finally, replace the firmware and system software using webupdate.

Replacing the firmware should allow it to power up successfully after the update.

I hope that helps.

Your Nuvi should not need to be able to power up for a firmware update to be possible - replacing the firmware should allow it to power up successfully after the update.

I hope that helps.

Does your Garmin Nuvi 205 or 205W get stuck or freeze at startup or when loading maps?

One trick to try when your GPS is acting up is to perform a Hard Reset.

  1. The first step is to download the WebUpdater software.

  3. Run the WebUpdater program to install it to your PC and update the system software of your GPS.

Your Garmin Nuvi should be running as good as new.

Unlock maps


I do know a 'workaround' to Garmin's copy-protection for maps you legally are entitled to use, but before that, when a Garmin Nuvi 205 stops working or behaves strangely, there are two steps you can take yourself to try and get it going again:

  1. Perform a Hard Reset,
  2. Run WebUpdater to reinstall that firmware.

I hope that helps.

I bought a garmin nuvi 205 from someone very cheap he had three and show me 1 working fine so i bought the other one which is the 250 garmin and when i got home it was lock on the screen


Call him back and get your money back. You cannot unlock these, we can't unlock it either. It must go back to Garmin with the original receipt to be unlocked. If you bought it very cheap and he didn't giveyou the PIN, it was probably stolen.
